Patricia Anne Junghans

Our beloved, Patricia Anne Junghans peacefully went to meet her saviour January 12, 2024 with her husband, George, of 54 years by her side.

Pat was born July 1, 1949 in Brandon, Manitoba to loving parents Victor and Irene Marshall and was raised in Wawanesa with her older sister, Diane, and younger brother, Kenneth. Music was a large part of the Marshall household and sparked Pat’s lifelong love of singing. She spent many of her childhood years singing in local festivals and the Sunday School choir.
In high school, the Marshalls moved to Alberta where she later met a handsome Mountie named George Junghans. They were married in 1969. The young couple welcomed their first son, Greg, in the summer of 1972 and over the next few years welcomed Matthew in 1976, and then David in 1978. Raising a house full of boys is not an easy task but Pat absolutely loved it. She managed to wrangle them all while still maintaining her natural elegance and grace, with a side of silliness.

Pat’s passions were always with her family, friends and community. She loved to serve. It was her nature. She spent many hours serving in the church; whether singing on the worship team, hosting bible studies or helping with refreshments. Her home was always filled with people as well; family, friends or anyone who needed a friendly smile or chat – they would never go hungry. The boys always knew there would be cookies and a lasagna in the freezer to pull out as soon as their friends started pouring into the house.

Pat loved her family dearly. Her husband, children and grandchildren were the light of her life and her relationships with her parents and siblings were cherished. She was an amazing wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, cousin, and friend. She touched the lives of so many people. She will truly be missed and will never, ever, be forgotten. Pat left behind a lasting legacy in her husband George and three sons; Gregory (Tamara), Matthew (Deidra) and David (Laura) along with nine grandchildren; Rachel (Keegan), Isaak, Curtis (Brooklyn), Cole, Brianne, Elise, Stephanie, Braelyn and Cody. She’s also survived by her sister, Diane Tyler (Robert) and brother, Kenneth Marshall (Catherine).

A public service to celebrate Pat’s life will be held Saturday, February 3rd, 2024, at 2pm at Highway Christian Fellowship in Sidney BC. Everyone is welcome.

    What a beautiful tribute. I’m saddened I didn’t know most of this, though she was a cousin. A lovely lady, and so grateful she came to visit us in California.

    Pat was my best friend and duet partner as a young girl growing up in Wawanesa where we did everything together from singing lessons in Brandon to fun times at the cabin in Y Point on Pelican Lake.
    Many hours were spent in choir practice at the United Church just up the street and singing practice with Mrs. Marshall at the piano at home, preparing for our competition in various music festivals in southern Manitoba.
    We enjoyed many cokes after school in Jone’s Cafe on Main Street listening to the juke box. If we didn’t have the .10 cents for the coke, Mr. Marshall would always provide us with the cash if we stopped in at the garage across the street where he worked. I can still see his hand reaching into his pocket, with a nice smile on his face, giving us the dime each for our coke at the Cafe. Those were the days.
    Hours were spent listening to Pat’s 45s on the record player in her and Diane’s bedroom. We were like two peas in a pod talking about the boys we liked or making plans for an upcoming dance. It was an idyllic growing up with an idyllic friend whom I will always remember and love.
    I know how much she will be missed by all those whose lives she blessed in her later life as the kind and loving person she was.
    My condolences to all the family.
